Odell Beckham traveled to Dallas, may still sit vs. Cowboys

Odell Beckham traveled to Dallas, may still sit vs. Cowboys

For the first time since Matt Bryant in 2002, the last Giants open the season with a kicker who has no prior experience in the regular season. NY made a splash last season thanks in large part to their defense and they are among a handful of teams that are considered to be a contender for the Lombardi Trophy this season as they have the personnel and pedigree to win a championship. "If you want to be the best. you have to beat the best".

One would think that such a scenario would provide a whole bunch of familiarity... and it does, but every game is different.

The Giants three-time Pro Bowl receiver suffered an ankle injury in the team's second preseason game against the Cleveland Browns and has not practiced since. The Giants will head south to Texas for a Week 1 contest against the Cowboys; the broadcast begins at 8:30 p.m. ET and will be carried nationwide by NBC (live stream).

How can I listen to New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys on the radio? The run defense can do enough to not let Ezekiel Elliott run wild and the secondary should be able to hold the receivers in check. The total hit the betting board at 49.5 and has been dropped two points to 47.5. However, in the wake of Schefter's latest report, it is safe to say the obvious. Interestingly, they were 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in season openers against division foes until they upended the Cowboys here to start the season past year. 'Covers Expert Marc Lawrence'. Have thoughts on how the Cowboys and Giants are performing?

Game Preview: It has been a less than ideal off-season for the Cowboys.

Questions continue to surround the Giants running game. I'm going to work under the assumption he plays. "We will see how he responds". If Beckham is a scratch, this line will definitely shoot up to 5 or maybe even 5 ½.

If OBJ is unable to go, Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard will start for the Giants against a weak Cowboys pass defense. That way, if Beckham doesn't play, you aren't locked into only replacing him with a wide receiver. Quarterback Eli Manning does not have the arm strength he once had and will throw the inopportune pick about once a game.

Beckham, 24, caught 101 passes for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. So, you prepare for him, but as it works in the National Football League every week, if a starting player isn't available, typically teams put in a backup guy who is ready to go too. In the eight previous matchups in Dallas only one of the games have been decided by more than a touchdown, each of the past two games have been decided by a single point. This comes after the Cowboys easily posted the best record in the league a year ago.

NY will be as good offensively as Beckham makes the Giants. Add in home-field advantage for the Cowboys and it's easy to see a silly Manning mistake down the stretch handing Dallas an important early-season victory.
